mad about plaid

I got a hankering yesterday for a plaid tablecloth.  Maybe it's the Tommy Hilfiger commercial where they thrown down plaid blanets?  The idea just seems so cozy.  And I want something that really looks like a trapper blanket.  The type you might keep in your trunk in case your car breaks down.  Just not as thick. I think a real blanket would make glasses a little wobbly.

Side note: I'm surprised that LL Bean doesn't carry the trapper blankets anymore.  To me, they always seemed like a standard of the company.  What's next?  Get rid of the Boat & Tote bags?  Duck boots?

But I'm finding that non-Christmasy plaid tablecloths aren't really available.  I did find this one from Trader's and Company and it's pretty close to what was in my head, but I really was hoping for options.

And while they say that this red and black one is available in 54x90, I can't find it on the site.  The whole point of online shopping is to not have to talk to a human, right?  But I do love the very blanket-ness of this plaid.

So while originally this post was going to have all sorts of sources for plaid tablecloths, instead it's grumblings about why there isn't more plaid in the world.

So I'm going to get all crafty on you and tell you to go to JoAnn's and buy some plaid fabric. You could even use Stitch Witchery and an iron to finish the edges. :)

that is such a brilliant idea!

Oooh, I thought you would snark back! It's such a YOU thing to say! :)

that's probably why I didn't realize you were being snarky!
